The Olustee Battlefield Historic State Park and annual reenactment site is located on U.S. 90, 15 miles east of Lake City and 50 miles west of Jacksonville.
From I-10, exit at U.S. 90 and travel west 5.5 miles.
From I-75, exit at U.S. 90 and travel east approximately 20 miles.
During most of the year, free parking for visitors is available right inside the entrance. However, during the annual reenactment visitor parking spaces are harder to come by, and you can't park inside the park entrance. If you intend to visit the park during the reenactment read the advice on parking in The Authentic Spectator. Both vehicular and pedestrian traffic will be heavy near the park entrance, so please use caution. And you are strongly advised to follow the directions of the Florida State Troopers directing traffic.
However, if you are a civilian or military reenactor, sutler or exhibitor, then separate parking information is enclosed with your registration and application packets, or in the General Information and Commander's Letter files, when they are posted online.
If you are traveling to the Olustee Battlefield during the reenactment weekend, Lake City traffic will be heavy due to the Olustee Festival. If coming from the south on I-75, it might be faster to go north to I-10 exit, then east to the U.S. 90 exit as stated above. Or if coming from further south on I-75, check road maps so you can swing east or north through Lake Butler. At Lake Butler, then turn west to state route 231, which goes north to the town of Olustee. Then go east on U.S. 90 to the battlefield.
